Mortal Kombat to Bundle Four New Characters in Season Pass on XBLA

Once again proving the industry lacks original thought much of the time, Warner Brothers and NetherRealm have announced a SeasonPass for Mortal Kombat.Mortal Kombat

Like many other companies are doing, this will bundle up DLC into a single pack, in this case it’s new warriors for the game, at a discounted price.

The four warriors in the SeasonPass are Skarlet, Kenshi, Rain and an as-yet-unannounced character.

Wait, so they want you to pay for a bundle where you don’t know what a quarter of it is? Each warrior will come with a full move set, a ladder arcade story ending and two fatalities.

The Mortal Kombat Season Pass will be 1200 MSP, saving you the price of one character (they are 400MSP each). Each warrior will become unlocked for download as they become available throughout the summer.

In order to allow for seamless online play with the new downloadable warriors, free compatibility packs will be required to download with the release of each new warrior.  As an added incentive, each compatibility pack will come with two FREE klassic skins – the first of which are being released with Skarlet will be Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 inspired Cyrax and Sektor.

Gamers who purchase the Mortal Kombat Season Pass (or individual Add-on content) will automatically get the free klassic skins when they download each warrior. Those who do not purchase the Mortal Kombat Season Pass or the Add-ons, will be able to download the compatibility packs for free and have access to the klassic skins as well.

So the whole point of it being free for Season Pass purchasers is mott since those who do not buy anything will still get the skins.

It seems to me that this is just a way to make some extra money on what they expect to be lacklusters sales of the add-on characters. There are probably many players who would buy one or maybe two of the upcoming characters but not three or four. This seems squarely aimed at getting them to commit to paying for the Season Pass, which is 400MSP than if they were just to buy two characters even though they probably wouldn’t play them or weren’t planning on getting them. Plus, without knowing the fourth character you’re essentially gambling on whether or not it will be someone you want or will play.
